We love pets!
We Are Pet Nation is a community built by Pet Lovers for Pet Lovers. Our goal is to create the largest interactive and supportive Pet community in the world. The idea for We Are Pet Nation came from a lifelong love of animals and from countless observations of pet owners forming bonds and friendships based on the simple common experience of owning a pet that they love. There are over 71 million pet owners in the U.S. alone, and many who are already a part of this loving community. Be sure to share We Are Pet Nation with your friends, interact and tell us all about your Pal. Don’t forget to enter your pal’s picture and story under the “Make My Pet a Star” link. We can’t wait to meet them!
Meet our founders
Steve Borrelli is co-founder and the daily voice behind We Are Pet Nation Inc. His love of animals began at an early age, with his pet dachshund, Grinde, and has continued to this day. He brings that passion to the We Are Pet Nation project, which for him has been a labor of love. A former Fortune 500 Information Technology Executive, Steve is also passionate about people. He currently does consulting work focusing on Leadership Mentoring and Management Development for individuals and businesses. A native New Yorker, Steve currently lives in central New Jersey with his beautiful 2 year-old calico, Gracie.
Dr. Nancy Soares VMD, founder and owner of Macungie Animal Hospital, takes very seriously the significant roles that pets play in our lives. She traces her own passion for animals and aspiration to be a veterinarian back to the age of eight, when she met Harvey, a black lab owned by family friends. Nancy Soares graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in veterinary medicine. While still a student, Soares helped found and direct the Pet Visitation Program at the University. Modeled after the human patient program at the University of Pennsylvania hospital, this program allowed for the first time owners to visit their hospitalized pets. The program honors the bond between pets and their owners and the integral role this connection plays in the healing process.
Our pets are our family.
We hope We Are Pet Nation will be a fun experience where friends can come to get helpful information on Health & Nutrition, Behavior & Training, Adoption & Animal Welfare, new products, current events and more. We also hope our friends come here to share stories and pictures of their pets, discuss challenges they have faced as an owner that can help others and ultimately support one another with the common goal of enhancing the lives of the pets we love (and their owners).
